LiveDeal Announces Strategic Reduction In Force Of Sales And Marketing Personnel

LiveDeal, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIVE), a Las Vegas-based provider of Internet marketing services for small businesses, announced today that it has eliminated 36 positions, all of which were held by personnel responsible for the sales and marketing of the company’s InstantPromote product through its subsidiary Local Marketing Experts, Inc.

“In the last several weeks, sales of our InstantProfile product, our subscription-based 360-degree solution, designed to give small and medium-sized businesses the ability to advertise on the Internet and communicate with their customers, have increased substantially and demonstrated tremendous potential,” stated Kevin A. Hall, President and Chief Operating Officer of LiveDeal. “Making these cuts will allow us to focus additional resources on the further development and expansion of our core InstantProfile product and its companions while we continue to service our existing InstantPromote customers.”

As a result of the personnel reduction, which reduced LiveDeal’s total workforce by approximately 60%, the company expects to reduce operating expenses by approximately $150,000 per month for the remainder of fiscal year 2011. LiveDeal will incur one-time cash expenses of approximately $98,000 in connection with the reduction in force, which includes approximately $60,000 of salaries and wages payable to the affected employees. Substantially all of those expenses will be incurred in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011.
